I recently received a little surprise in the mail, the new Anni Daulter book titled Naturally Fun Parties for Kids: Creating Earth-Friendly Celebrations for All Seasons and Occasions. It was a gorgeous day, so I sat outside on my front step browsing the book while my toddler played and infant cooed in the stroller. My first thought - "That's a lot of crafty eye candy!" Seriously, if you're hooked on Pinterest you'll love this book. Here is a little peek, Baby T will show you around.
I'll be honest, if you are not into natural, crafty, and 'it's the process that brings joy' type person - this may not be the book for you. This is not a book for 'ready made' type parties. But if you are remotely crafty, love food, and you enjoy simplicity - you'll like it a lot. I am very 'less is more' when it comes to parties. Including the guest list. I do not like a house full of guests when you don't even have a moment to talk to anyone because you're busy throwing the party. What is the point? This book really caters to the small, intimate occasions where there are few guests and the focus is the time spent together - and the food of course! Food, something Anni knows well and is so good at. We regularly use her cookbooks - Organically Raised, Ice Pop Joy, and The Organic Family Cookbook!
